St. Jerome's Laneway Festival
- The headliners: Sigur Rós and The National
- Sigur Rós's style: bowed guitar, ethereal soundscapes
- I'm fluent in Icelandic. Why can't I understand the lyrics?: many of Sigur Rós's songs are sung in "Hopelandic," a non-literal language invented by the band
- Unexpected Sigur Rós cover: The Simpsons theme
- How Billboard describes The National: "heady, dense, atmospheric"
- How the Tasmanian Devil describes The National: Waaaooowww! Blaaagggh! Thpppth! (turns into a tornado and spins away)
- Why do the band members all look so similar?: frontman Matt Berninger is backed by two sets of brothers—twins Aaron and Bryce Dessner and Scott and Bryan Devendorf
- Band whose name sounds the least like its music: The Dismemberment Plan
- Other notables: AlunaGeorge, Chet Faker, Deerhunter
- American- and Detroit-based bands playing The Movement Stage: Matthew Dear, ADULT., Shigeto, Heathered Pearls, and Beacon
- Where did the festival's name come from?: the fest's original venue, St. Jerome's Bar in Melbourne (now defunct)
- What did St. Jerome do?: pulled a thorn from a lion's paw, then sampled the lion's purring over a remix of a Gregorian chant
